Somewhere, in an underground castle in China, six strangers awake with no memories. Yes, we seem to be getting a lot of these kinds of films lately, but Matt Eskandari's upcoming thriller, The Guantlet, looks like it might bring a little bit of extra mysticism to the survivalist horror genre.

When I looked up a little bit more about the project I found out that Eskandari and writer Adam Lawson were influenced, of course, by films like Saw, but also classic mysteries, like Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" about ten strangers who are lured to an Island by an unknown host.

In a sunken castle underneath the earth, six strangers wake. They have no food. No memory. No water. And no way out. These strangers are from every normal walk of life, yet they each have a secret. They don't know it yet, but they're capable of something they never imagined. They must organize and band together for the sinister adventure that awaits them.

The Gauntlet stars Bai Ling, Jaime Ray Newman, Dustin Nguyen, Nick Lane and Warren Kole and is still in post-production. Here's hoping we see some footage, or at least some larger stills soon.

Stills after the break.
